They say today we neither sow nor reap, just eat bread. But no, we share it with neighbours and birds, with boys and girls for safe return.
One of the oldest and most fundamental Lithuanian food products was and is rye bread. Bread plays an important role in family holiday rituals and agrarian ceremonies. Lithuanians link many beliefs and magic with bread. One of them is the protective characteristic of bread, protection from fire and help in putting out fires. For protection a piece of bread is placed in the foundation when building a new house.
